Ophthalmologist or Optometrist?

Optometrists are primary health providers for normal vision problems and yearly checkups. The position requires a Doctor of Optometry degree and a license, and allows the diagnosing for common vision acuity problems like farsightedness and nearsightedness, prescribing corrective eyeglasses, contact lenses, dispensing and prescription of certain medication, plus testing for eye diseases and conditions.

Ophthalmologists perform the same functions as optometrists, but are considered a higher position since they are medical doctors with Doctors of Medicine, or Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine degrees who specialize in the eyes and vision care. An ophthalmologist can diagnose and treat highly complicated eyes issues, can perform surgeries (i.e. Lasik and retinal damage repair), and work with specific cases in vision care. The main difference between the two eye-related careers is that an ophthalmologist can handle surgeries and other issues that require more training on the medical side.

A sommelier (or wine steward) is a trained wine professional, working in fine restaurants, who specializes in all aspects of wine service as well as wine and food pairing. The role is much more specialized and informed than that of a wine waiter: In fine dining today the role is strategically on a par with that of the executive chef or chef de cuisine. Most sommeliers are good friends of the Joe-kster.
